Video: PS3 BD-J (Blu-ray Java) Running Through a BD-R Disc!

550°
259w ago - Today DemonHades (linked above) posted a video from cupra4t on YouTube showing homebrew PS3 BD-J (Blu-ray Java) running through a BD-R disc on PS3 Firmware 2.80.

This is the first confirmation that PS3 BD-Java is still alive on the PS3 since it stopped working from USB in PS3 Firmware 2.50.

To quote, roughly translated: It appears that recording to any homebrew BD-R BD-Java, this can be run from any PS3 console from any firmware.

To make it work implements have to record the BDMV and CERTIFICATE folders in the root of the disk. PS3 to get it into the menu of [Video] we will bear in our BD and homebrew. I leave you a video:

From here it follows that only banned the BD-Java and the USB reader... with this, the Sony console is able to load emulators and homebrew games once again.

For those who haven't updated to PS3 Firmware 2.50 yet, here are the translated details courtesy of PSPImages.net:

The emulator has been programmed in BD-J code, a form of JAVA, which is normally used for advanced Blu-ray menus. The emulator is a bit slow and there is not much sound but it's easy and works very well.

Instructions:

1. Download the emulator
2. Place the AVCHD on an USB drive (use FAT32)
3. Place the drive in the USB port of the PS3
4. Select the drive and start the AVCHD folder from VIDEO
5. Choose a game

You can use the triangle button to select the numbers...
 

PS3 Firmware Update 2.50 Marks the End of BD-J Homebrew?

305w ago - Japanese developer Bu-nyan has posted on his page (linked above) the following:

"※FW2.50でBD-Jが起•–なくなりま–た。
バージョンアッ––て–ま£たので'-は停止ですorz"

Roughly translated, tmaster has concluded the following:

"FW2.50 not start in the BD-J.
Upgrade to stop so we can update orz"

I don't know if Bu-nyan is saying its ok to upgrade or not.

Update: I can confirm that bd-j don't work with 2.50. I tried it on my brothers ps3 and it gives me an error. good thing I still have mine at 2.43 to play java.

Why sony stopped I don't know.. maybe a hack, who knows?

Note: FYI, although most of the PS3 Devs are sleeping CJPC said the following on IRC: "It probably is on, but they may have changed it a bit.. possibly to only work from a pressed bd-rom or some bs, which, still makes 0 sense. bd-j functionality is CORE for any bd player.. at profile 2.0 that the ps3 has (or 1.1, can't recall) so bd-j is not off, something just changed with it."

That being said, it may explain why Bu-nyan and others are reporting BD-J as not working... when...
